Image Forward


Image Forward

A webextension to easily go through images embedded on or linked from a web page.


If you are on `page_one` that contains 3 images, you can press
`Ctrl-Shift-Space` to load `image_one` as if you had right clicked it and
chosen `View Image`. Press again and `image_two` is loaded (without having to
go back to `page_one` and click on it), again and `image_three` is loaded. One
more press will bring you back two `page_one`. At any time you could have
pressed `Ctrl-Shift-B` to go straight back to `page_one`. Images are only
loaded if they are bigger than what's configured in the add-on's options,
otherwise they are skipped. A real example where you can do this is

Similarly, if you are on `page_two` that links to a bunch of images, you can
press `Ctrl-Space` to load first `image.jpg`, then `image.png` and then go back
to `page_two`. The images that are loadable are determined by a regular
expression that you can configure in the options. Add `tiff` to also load any
tiff image or match any page that you want to load. An example where this works
is https://www.reddit.com/r/wallpaper which however
contains many links to pages instead of images, so you have to check out the

Due to conflicts, you can use `Alt-Shift-Space` and `Alt-Space` instead of the
default shortcuts to load images on Mac and `Ctrl-Shift-X` to go back in

Inspired by parts of Opera 12's Fast Forward.
